CTIP Student Guide to Preventing Human Trafficking

The U.S. Department of Defense Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) Program Management Office (PMO) and Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) developed a new course, the CTIP Student Guide to Preventing Human Trafficking.  The course teaches military-connected high school students (10th – 12th grade) about human trafficking.  Teens will understand how human trafficking is occurring in student settings and particularly online where exploitation of children and teens is increasingly occurring today. 

The student can view as many or as few topic action cards as they would like, in any order.  There are videos, quizzes, and other interactive features throughout the course.

It is accompanied by a Parent Resource Guide for military-connected parents, which explains to parents why it is important to educate students about human trafficking and walks parents through the course topics.
